A Fresh & Welcoming Entryway




A very large entryway but also very dark! With a solid front door and a darker paint colour, this space wasn’t overly inviting.

The couple wanted to make this space impressive, maximize functionality and to make it stand out more than what it was currently offering.

They didn’t feel that the builder selected the right light fixtures and they also wanted to make use of the custom built-in bench – cozier and more colourful than it currently was.


Since we had a lot of space to work with, the design started off with the oversized credenza that would not only look great against the large wall but also provide some storage for a busy family always on the go.

Pairing the credenza with an oversized mirror was the perfect touch to help bounce natural light in this area; as well as be a piece you surely notice as soon as you come in the front door. We changed out the light fixtures to provide better lighting and we added in two table lamps to create extra ambiance during specific times of the day.

Turquoise tones were brought in with the area rug as well as the custom bench cushion. Accent pillows and accessories really tie this once bare space into an inviting entrance way.
